line. we have 72 now at the airport. dew point at 70, wind is calm. as we look at the overall set up this is the deal. it's obviously been warm for october. low 80s, that is the story and i think the next two days we have a good shot of 80 degrees. especially on friday. humidity high tonight. we still have to watch for potential fog, potential patchy fog, that we do not expect that widespread mass of fog that we had to deal with and in to the morning drive. current set up showing clearing to the west and that will be the story starting tomorrow afternoon into friday. current visibility reports half of -- about six miles in york. we are seeing some reduce visibility but not the heavy fog that we saw by this time last night. we keep patchy fog in the situation toward the morning, always a headache. midlevel moisture. hit or miss shower, possible tonight. into your day tomorrow. there is dryer air on the
march. you can see the upper midwest clearing outfliesly and that dryer air will march in as we go forward in time. forward toward the end of the week. here is the future trendw. are still in the warm steamy sector of this area of low pressure, dryer air will make its presence felt by tomorrow afternoon and into the day friday. looks like a beautiful day of sun and dry weather but then this. a major shot of cooler air, in for the second half of the weekend and you will feel that. tropical depression 15 getting better organized. there we go with another named system. if you are watching we are talking about the trajectory will keep it out to sea. overnight 65, mostly cloudy, patchy late fog, patchy in to the morning rush hour but not look agent that widespread thick dense fog situation where we are dealing last night which was this really tough to drive in. 82 for a high tomorrow. that's two degree guarantee.
80 on friday. clear skies and then thwind starts to roll in saturday and lockaways comes in behind them. new area rain and that plus that shot of cooler canada air, a raw day i think sunday. probably only in the upper 50s and that will be quite a change. so goes midobvious. here in maryland. >> looks like fall. >> yeah. little taste. little early taste. >> thank you. before you head off to bed what you can expect from tomorrow morning's drive. lauren cook with a look. >> reporter: the abc time safer traffic report. construction is underway on 795, crows patching pot holes between the belt rey and owings mill. two lanes will be closed through 5 a.m. in baltimore repairs continue on the st. clair lane bridget. will be shut down at edson highway through spring of next year. of course i will track the
